This is exactly what Olivia Culpo eats in a day

10/10 for yum

August 14 2020

Wanna replicate Olivia Culpo’s insanely luxe lifestyle, at least when it comes to food? (No judgement, you’re only human.) 

As a model - throwback to her 2012 Miss Universe win! - the 28-year-old is all about nourishing her body from the inside out. Which is why she subscribes to a strict low-carb and high-protein diet. Unless, that is, there’s a worldwide pandemic at play…

"I stick to the 80/20 rule," she told Women's Health US"During quarantine, it was more 40/60. I just try to keep a balance."

Here’s what her average food fare looks like.


Thanks to her super cute but sleep adverse puppy, Olivia usually kicks off her day at 6 am. with a cuppa and some fibre-filled fruit. "I have hot coffee with almond milk and I like blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries," she told the publication. "They're really perfect for the mornings; so refreshing and full of fibre.” If she’s feeling extra fuel? She'll munch on egg whites and avocado with toast. YUM.



Olivia’s days are jam-packed (perks of being a celeb,) so it’s important that her midday meal is both quick and satiating. "For lunch, I'll have some sort of salad," she said. "I love chicken and any veggies with a miso vinaigrette."

If she’s not in the mood for a salad, she’ll whack a few ingredients in a pan and pop it in the oven.

"I chop up chicken, put it in a bag, season it, and roll the chicken around in the seasoning. Then, I put it on a pan with broccolini and sweet potatoes and bake it at [175 Celsius.]"


To keep her going in-between lunch and dinner, Olivia keeps some protein-packed snacks on hand. "I'm obsessed with nuts," she says. "I do regular mixed nuts because I like the salt. Raw almonds without salt is just too boring for me."

Also Olivia-approved: M&Ms, raisins, almonds, cashews, and peanuts—particularly on shoot days. "I need energy on set, so I like the raisins and the chocolate," she explained.

Smoothies are another easy on-the-go option.

"If I'm trying to be really clean, I sometimes have them as snacks," she says. "I do a frozen banana, cacao, a little bit of almond butter, salt, cinnamon, vanilla, and either Vital Proteins Collagen Powder or Garden of Life Vanilla Organic Plant Protein."



Dinner is almost always a mix of veggies and protein.

Think Palmini linguine (made from hearts of palm) with chicken, tomato sauce, peas and mushroom or noodles made from the konjac plant.

"They're a low-carb noodle that I love to use with scallops, capers, and a light oil," she says.

She also has grilled veggies and fish on regular rotation.

"I'm more of a white wine or Champagne kinda person," she added. Her faves? Chardonay and Pinot grigio.

Little wonder she looks so good.
